Meister Eckhart said of Creation "Every creature is a word of God." Reading Francis and reading Eckhart is a very harmonious experience. Their spirituality is creation-centered that is so biblical.G.K.Chesterton says of Francis
Francis never forgot to take pleasure in a bird as it flashed past him or a drop of water as it fell from his finger.- Francis could not see why he should not be on good terms with all things.
